Could it really be a year since I BLOGGED???

Yes, it has indeed been a year. In the last photos I was pregnant and we now have a darling little girl named Cora Maria Louise. She was born July 21st 2011. She is sweet, funny, loves to laugh and so super independent. She is so very different from Laurel. Who is now 3 1/2 and she is too smart for her own good...I mean it in the best way. She is funny and soooo very creative and crafty. As she says, " She loves a craft."
Enjoy a few recent pics of our beautiful life in Durango with our two sweet girls.

I've been inspired to do this again. I am going to promise to try and keep this up. They are both growing up so fast and I need to blog to remember it all..................

Spring...and almost Summer fun

It has been a while since I "blogged". I don't really think I can call myself a blogger, but oh well. Here is what is going on with us in Durango.
Summer is approaching and we have been very busy. My parents were here during the month of April and in May we went to Madison to visit cousins and the rest of our family of course. May in Durango has been hot, but it has not stopped us from enjoying hiking the Colorado trails and biking around town....yes I am still biking on my cruiser bike that Chris bought me for mothers day.  Chris rode in the Iron Horse bike ride which goes from Durango to Silverton and Laurel competed in her own Iron Horse bike race. She did a great job racing her tricycle!!
During the first week of June we quickly headed to Denver for one day and then up to the mountain to camp at Buffalo Creek. We meet up with our friends the Hoogendoorn's for a weekend of super fun camping. It was Laurel's first real camping experience and she seems to love sleeping in the tent and playing around outside all day.
Well our next big adventure will be happening right here in Durango...we will welcome the newest addition to the family sometime near the 25th of July. We will keep you posted.

Easter morning...Laurel enjoying her Spring bunny basket

Easter weekend

We had a great Easter weekend. We were very busy and had some of our favorite visitors in town. Our dear friends and lovers of Laurel CJ and Susan came from Grand Junction to spend Easter weekend with us. We dyed (the first time use of natural dies) our Easter eggs and they came out beautiful. The colors were amazing I was really impressed and will continue to do this in the future. On Saturday morning we took Laurel to the local Easter Egg hunt in the park. It was a hoot...there were tons of toddlers and lots o plastic Easter eggs stuffed with crappy candy, but Laurel seems to love it and we saw lots of friends that we have made over the past 4 months. I think the best thing about Easter in the park was the Easter bunny arriving on the fire truck.. so cool. Sunday morning Laurel was into finding her Spring basket as I try not to delve into the whole meaning of Easter. We have taken it on as our Spring Celebration. She found all kinds of fun items in her basket; a kite, a watering can and seeds to plant in our front yard. We had a lovely weekend and Laurel continues to be so inquisitive and articulate.
